The Most Fuel Efficient Car Yet

Would you want a car that is only a few feet tall, seats two, and has a trunk that could hold one bag of groceries? Small groceries, at that? This car’s fuel capacity, by the way, is one liter.

But. It gets 239 miles per gallon.

It sounds like a very intriguing idea. While we’re sitting here getting a wimpy 52 mpg, Germans are working on something much more efficient. What? It’s not practical? Sure it’s not! But neither is parking an eight-foot-long box of solid metal.

It’s not a surprise to see companies other than American ones trying to do something about conserving fuel.
